Engineering Plastics - Nylon's, Acetal & Delrin
Bay Plastics stock an extensive range of engineering plastic products, semi-finished plastic materials available in sheets, plates, rods and tubes. We offer a professional cutting service, rapid turnaround and cut to size option on all general engineering plastics.
As well as offering advantages over metallic materials, our general engineering plastics hold excellent mechanical and thermal properties over other more commonly used commodity plastics. Engineering plastics are easily workable compared to their metal counterparts.
Engineering plastics offer many advantages over metal as a production material:
Reduction in weight
Good wear properties
Superior corrosion and chemical resistance
Ease of processing
Electrical and thermal insulation
Selecting the correct engineering plastics for your application can be an intimidating proposition, and certainly the selection process will be crucial in determining the success or failure of the application. Therefore, consideration of the application conditions are crucial, i.e. chemicals, heat/temperature, speeds/loads, expansion/creep and insulations are just some examples.
Bay Plastics are here to ensure the right selection has been made. Our commitment to service and unrivalled product knowledge enables us to guide you in all aspects of material selection. Our web site contains comprehensive information on the general engineering plastics range that we stock, with the main characteristics and application examples for each type. All plastic material data sheets, plastics material safety sheets and application information are available for free in our download section. Alternatively, please call us now to discuss all of your plastic requirements on 0191 258 0777, our fully trained sales advisors are ready to help with your material selection.

ABS sheets can be processed with ease and versatility, available in a range of colour and texture finishes.
Acetal & Delrin sheets, plates and rods are among the strongest and stiffest of all thermoplastics.
Nylon has become the most well known engineering plastics due to their excellent properties.
Oil filled nylon has been especially developed for unlubricated, high load & slowly moving applications.
Polycarbonate PC1000 has a 145 C heat resistant temperature and resists acidic and watery substances alike.
Polyester PET-P is an alternative to Delrin, as it absorbs less moisture, & holds it shape much more easily.
There are many variations of polyethylene that have been created to meet specific market requirements.
Polypropylene (PPC) & (PPH) grades are preferred for all applications exposed to cold conditions.
Polyurethane can replace rubber, plastic or metal to create the ultimate material in abrasion resistance.
PTFE has a combination of chemical, electrical and thermal performance unmatched by any other material.
PVC is light, water resistant, offers a long life cycle and does not require much maintenance.
Tufnol bearing materials are widely used where tough, wear resistant components are needed.
Tufnol Fabric materials are the workhorse tufnol grades for general mechanical applications.
Tufnol Glass belongs to the range of high performance laminates branded under Tufnol.
The Tufnol Paper grades are selected for greater electrical stability in conditions of varying humidity.
